Metals machining involves severe loading at the cutting zone. Work-material behavior, cutting tool characteristics, cutting conditions and configuration, all have effects on cutting process performance, machined part quality, and cutting cost. In the last few years, several research works have been conducted to understand the physical phenomena occurring when machining metal-based materials. However, a great deal remains to be studied, because new high-performance metals are being developed and their machinability is not well controlled (excessive wear, built-up edge formation, surface integrity degradation, chip fragmentation difficulty, etc.). For instance, mechanisms of microstructure evolution when machining metals having a complex microstructure are not clearly explained (e.g., is there recrystallization or not?). Thus, the study of cutting phenomena in metals machining remains open.
This Special Issue invites the submission of high quality research articles related to the machining of metal-based materials. It covers a large topic and may include these main aspects:
- Metal machinability (e.g., cutting power, hardness, ductility, chemical reaction, etc.)
- Work-material behavior (e.g., work-hardening, ductility, heat generation, etc.)
- Tribological behavior, e.g., related to cutting conditions (dry or wet)
- Microstructure evolution (e.g., recrystallization, grain size, etc.)
- Chip formation mechanisms (e.g., segmentation, fragmentation, etc.)
- Surface integrity, e.g., related to the surface roughness and induced residual stresses, etc.
- Tools wear, related to the machined metal and tool characteristics
- Tools design based on work-material characteristics (e.g., chip breaker, edge preparation)
High quality research works on metals machining, related to experiments (e.g., instrumented cutting tests), characterization (e.g., hardness, fracture, microstructure), and modeling (e.g., analytical, numerical) are expected.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
